BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – It's no surprise that Indiana tumbled out of the Associated Press top-25 poll on Tuesday after last weekend's ugly 34-6 to Iowa, but the surprise was that the Hoosiers still got some votes.

Indiana, which was ranked No. 17 in the opening poll, got 37 votes overall, which would rank them No. 33 in the country. They fell out of  the top-25 for the first time in 11 weeks, dating all the way back to Oct. 26, 2020, when they moved into the rankings after a season-opening win over then No. 8 Penn State. They were also No. 17 in the Coaches Poll and fell out of that ranking, too. They would have been No. 32 overall in that poll, with 58 total votes.

Indiana was in the AP's preseason rankings for the first time since 1969, though the stay didn't last long. The Hoosiers have plenty of options to get back into the rankings. Opponents Ohio State (No. 3), Cincinnati (No. 7) and Penn State (No. 11) are all ranked.

Indiana plays Cincinnati in Bloomington on Sept. 18, the Hoosiers are at Penn State on Oct. 2 and have a showdown with Ohio State on Oct. 23.
